Mother’s Day is upon us, and in the face of this, our team are here to de-bunk a common myth surrounding Mothers, and the rights they have. 
 
Mother’s Day is well known for being a day of celebrating our loved ones, usually the mothers, grandmas, and even their mothers. We buy gifts (which hopefully aren’t eaten before the big day!), and we spend some quality time with our family. However, on such a day, not all mothers are with their children. 
Mother’s Day is more commonly known as Mothering Sunday, and is said to originate from 16th Century, when people returned to their mother church (the place where they were baptised or their nearest church) to attend the Laetare Sunday service (a service held on the fourth Sunday of Lent). The religious meaning behind the day is said to have kept it’s place over the years, until the 1950’s, where it became a common-place celebration across the UK.

So, as a reminder, an Easement is a right over a property which benefits another property (you can read more about them here) and an easement may be granted to continue indefinitely, or for a fixed period of time. Whereas a lease is a contract by which one party conveys land, property services, etc. to another person for a specified period of time, usually in return for payment (you can read more about them here). To confuse matters a little more there is also such a thing called a lease of easements. A lease of easements occurs when someone has a lease of land which they then adapt to grant a lease of rights, but interpreting such a document can create difficulty because sometimes it is not clear whether a lease of easements is granting a lease or creating an easement for a set number of years. 
We’ve only gone and done it, haven’t we!

MG Legal, Solicitors in Lancaster know that Buying your first home can be one of the most stressful times in anyone’s life!  
 
So, let us help by answering one or two of the most commonly asked questions about the Help to Buy ISA: 
Local Knowledge: - Local Solicitors = Local Knowledge.  
 
So, you found your dream home. The Seller hasn’t disclosed any issues with flooding and you aren’t aware of this being an issue either. You’ve decided not to have searches carried out, and the flooding issue hasn’t come to light. Your local Solicitor knows the area and knows to ask the Solicitor on the otherside whether there have been issues in this regard. Local Knowledge means that there is a much higher likelihood of accuracy when it comes to your transaction and it may also mean speed too. If the Solicitor has local -knowledge they may not have to waste time raising 1,000,000 queries if they already know the answer!  
 
Some property Solicitors in Preston, such as yours truly have dealt with transactions where they have bought the property for one party and are now selling the property so we know they questions that are likely to be raised and we can often pre-empt them!
